Tom Cruise proved he doesn’t have a fear of heights on Thursday, as he was pictured climbing across the roof of the Vienna State Opera House while filming scenes for Mission Impossible 5.

Strapped into a harness, Cruise climbed out onto the opera house to shoot a stunt scene for the latest Mission Impossible movie. Under the yellow and black harness, Cruise was outfitted casually in a tight gray t-shirt, dark jeans and brown lace-up shoes, and completed his look with a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses.

Joining Cruise atop the landmark in the Austrian capital was his costar Rebecca Ferguson. Clad in a black shirt, black pants and sneakers, the actress furtively stepped onto the roof’s platform.

In between shots, Cruise was pictured chatting with Ferguson, as well as with director Christopher McQuarrie, who previously directed Cruise in Jack Reacher. McQuarrie has also written screenplays for Cruise vehicles Edge of Tomorrow and Valkyrie.

Mission Impossible 5, which will follow Ethan Hunt (Cruise) in his latest high-stakes operation, will also star Paula Patton, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Alec Baldwin and Ving Rhames.
